Conversations with Anne on Saturdays
December 7, 2013 – Holidays in the Secret Annex
For the eight people hiding in the Secret Annex during World War II, the holiday season was an especially sweet time to celebrate. Anne and her family spent most of their time living with fear of being discovered and the growing anticipation of the end of the war. The helpers who protected them were able to bring extra rations during the holidays and helped those in hiding to pick out small gifts to mark the holiday season. It was a time for Anne and the others to remember those who were lost or in the camps and to celebrate the little things they were grateful for.

This dramatic two-person performance (with a backdrop of compelling scenes from World War ll and the US Civil Rights eras) juxtaposes two of the more important works ever written about human rights, both from places of confinement: Anne Frank’s “Diary of a Young Girl” (1947) and Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail (1963).
First developed by The Anne Frank Center USA for Martin Luther King remembrance events in January 2013, this show rapidly became our most attention-getting production.
Program length including discussion: 70-80 minutes.
